6.00pm – Fifth Sunday after Trinity

BCP Evensong with sung repsonses

 

The sacrifices of God are a broken spirit : a broken and a contrite heart, O God, thou wilt not despise. Psalm 51.17

Dearly beloved, the Scripture moveth us in sundry places to acknowledge and confess our manifold sins and wickedness; and that we should not dissemble nor cloke them before the face of Almighty God our heavenly Father; but confess them with an humble, lowly, penitent, and obedient heart; to the end that we may obtain forgiveness of the same, by his infinite goodness and mercy. And although we ought at all times humbly to acknowledge our sins before God; yet ought we most chiefly so to do, when we assemble and meet together to render thanks for the great benefits that we have received at his hands, to set forth his most worthy praise, to hear his most holy Word, and to ask those things which are requisite and necessary, as well for the body as the soul. Wherefore I pray and beseech you, as many as are here present, to accompany me with a pure heart and humble voice unto the throne of the heavenly grace, saying after me:

A general Confession to be said of the whole Congregation after the Minister, all kneeling.

Almighty and most merciful Father, We have erred, and strayed from thy ways like lost sheep, We have followed too much the devices and desires of our own hearts, We have offended against thy holy laws, We have left undone those things which we ought to have done, And we have done those things which we ought not to have done, And there is no health in us: But thou, O Lord, have mercy upon us miserable offenders; Spare thou them, O God, which confess their faults, Restore thou them that are penitent, According to thy promises declared unto mankind in Christ Jesu our Lord: And grant, O most merciful Father, for his sake, That we may hereafter live a godly, righteous, and sober life, To the glory of thy holy Name. Amen.

The Absolution or Remission of sins to be pronounced by the Priest alone, standing: the people still kneeling.

Almighty God, the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who desireth not the death of a sinner, but rather that he may turn from his wickedness, and live; and hath given power, and commandment, to his Ministers, to declare and pronounce to his people, being penitent, the Absolution and Remission of their sins: He pardoneth and absolveth all them that truly repent, and unfeignedly believe his holy Gospel. Wherefore let us beseech him to grant us true repentance, and his Holy Spirit, that those things may please him, which we do at this present; and that the rest of our life hereafter may be pure, and holy; so that at the last we may come to his eternal joy; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.

Then the Minister shall kneel, and say the Lord's Prayer: the people also kneeling, and repeating it with him.

Our Father, which art in heaven, Hallowed be thy Name, Thy kingdom come, Thy will be done, in earth as it is in heaven. Give us this day our daily bread; And forgive us our trespasses, As we forgive them that trespass against us; And lead us not into temptation, But deliver us from evil. For thine is the kingdom, the power, and the glory, For ever and ever. Amen.

Then likewise she shall say,

O Lord, open thou our lips.

And our mouth shall shew forth thy praise.

O God, make speed to save us.

O Lord, make haste to help us.

Here, all standing up, the Priest shall say,

Glory be to the Father, and to the Son, and to the Holy Ghost;

As it was in the beginning, is now, and ever shall be, world without end. Amen.

Praise ye the Lord.

The Lord's Name be praised.

Then shall be said or sung the Psalms in order as they be appointed.

Psalm 65.8-13

8  They also that dwell in the uttermost parts of the earth shall be afraid at thy tokens *
 thou that makest the outgoings of the morning and evening to praise thee.
9  Thou visitest the earth, and blessest it *
 thou makest it very plenteous.
10  The river of God is full of water *
 thou preparest their corn, for so thou providest for the earth.
11  Thou waterest her furrows, thou sendest rain into the little valleys thereof *
 thou makest it soft with the drops of rain, and blessest the increase of it.
12  Thou crownest the year with thy goodness *
 and thy clouds drop fatness.
13  They shall drop upon the dwellings of the wilderness *
 and the little hills shall rejoice on every side.

Glory be to the Father, and to the Son, and to the Holy Ghost; As it was in the beginning, is now, and ever shall be, world without end. Amen.

 

Then a Lesson of the Old Testament, as is appointed.

 Isaiah 55.10-13

The readings are on the pewsheet.

And after that Magnificat (or the Song of the Blessed Virgin Mary) in English, as followeth.

Magnificat

My soul doth magnify the Lord :

and my spirit hath rejoiced in God my Saviour.

For he hath regarded :

the lowliness of his hand-maiden.

For behold, from henceforth :

all generations shall call me blessed.

For he that is mighty hath magnified me :

and holy is his Name.

And his mercy is on them that fear him :

throughout all generations.

He hath shewed strength with his arm :

he hath scattered the proud in the imagination of their hearts.

He hath put down the mighty from their seat :

and hath exalted the humble and meek.

He hath filled the hungry with good things :

and the rich he hath sent empty away.

He remembering his mercy hath holpen his servant Israel :

as he promised to our forefathers, Abraham and his seed, for ever.

Glory be to the Father, and to the Son :

and to the Holy Ghost; As it was in the beginning, is now, and ever shall be: world without end. Amen.

 

Then a Lesson of the New Testament, as it is appointed.

Matthew 13.1-9,18-23

And after that Nunc dimittis (or the Song of Simeon) in English, as followeth.

Nunc Dimittis

Lord, now lettest thou thy servant depart in peace :

according to thy word.

For mine eyes have seen :

thy salvation;

Which thou hast prepared :

before the face of all people;

To be a light to lighten the Gentiles :

and to be the glory of thy people Israel.

Glory be to the Father, and to the Son :

and to the Holy Ghost;

As it was in the beginning, is now, and ever shall be : world without end. Amen.

Then shall be said or sung the Apostles' Creed, by the Minister and the people standing.

The Apostles' Creed

I believe in God the Father Almighty, Maker of heaven and earth:

And in Jesus Christ his only Son our Lord, Who was conceived by the Holy Ghost, Born of the Virgin Mary, Suffered under Pontius Pilate, Was crucified, dead, and buried: He descended into hell; The third day he rose again from the dead; He ascended into heaven, And sitteth on the right hand of God the Father Almighty; From thence he shall come to judge the quick and the dead.

I believe in the Holy Ghost; The holy Catholick Church; The Communion of Saints; The Forgiveness of sins; The Resurrection of the body, And the Life everlasting. Amen.

And after that these Prayers following, all devoutly kneeling: the Minister first pronouncing with a loud voice,

 

The Lord be with you.

And with thy spirit.

Let us pray.

 

Lord, have mercy upon us.

Christ, have mercy upon us.

Lord, have mercy upon us.

 

 

Then the Minister, Clerks, and people shall say the Lord's Prayer with a loud voice.

Our Father, which art in heaven, Hallowed be thy Name, Thy kingdom come, Thy will be done, in earth as it is in heaven. Give us this day our daily bread; And forgive us our trespasses, As we forgive them that trespass against us; And lead us not into temptation, But deliver us from evil. Amen.

 

Then the Priest standing up shall say,

O Lord, shew thy mercy upon us.

And grant us thy salvation.

O Lord, save the Queen.

And mercifully hear us when we call upon thee.

Endue thy Ministers with righteousness.

And make thy chosen people joyful.

O Lord, save thy people.

And bless thine inheritance.

Give peace in our time, O Lord.

Because there is none other that fighteth for us, but only thou, O God.

O God, make clean our hearts within us.

And take not thy Holy Spirit from us.

 

 

Then shall follow three Collects: The first of the day: The second for Peace: The third for Aid against all Perils, as hereafter followeth: which two last Collects shall be daily said at Evening Prayer without alteration.

The Collect for the Day

Grant, O Lord, we beseech thee, that the course of this world may be so peaceably ordered by thy governance, that thy Church may joyfully serve thee in all godly quietness; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.

The Second Collect at Evening Prayer

O God, from whom all holy desires, all good counsels, and all just works do proceed: Give unto thy servants that peace which the world cannot give; that both our hearts may be set to obey thy commandments, and also that by thee we being defended from the fear of our enemies may pass our time in rest and quietness; through the merits of Jesus Christ our Saviour. Amen.

 

The Third Collect, for Aid against all Perils

Lighten our darkness, we beseech thee, O Lord; and by thy great mercy defend us from all perils and dangers of this night; for the love of thy only Son, our Saviour, Jesus Christ. Amen.

Sermon

The Creed

We believe in one God,
the Father, the Almighty,
maker of heaven and earth,
of all that is, seen and unseen.

We believe in one Lord, Jesus Christ,
the only Son of God,
eternally begotten of the Father,
God from God, Light from Light,
true God from true God,
begotten, not made,
of one Being with the Father;
through him all things were made.
For us and for our salvation
he came down from heaven,
was incarnate from the Holy Spirit
and the Virgin Mary
and was made man.
For our sake he was crucified
under Pontius Pilate;
he suffered death and was buried.

On the third day he rose again
in accordance with the Scriptures;
he ascended into heaven
and is seated at the right hand of the Father.
He will come again in glory
to judge the living and the dead,
and his kingdom will have no end.

We believe in the Holy Spirit,
the Lord, the giver of life,
who proceeds from the Father and the Son,
who with the Father and the Son
is worshipped and glorified,

who has spoken through the prophets.

We believe in one holy catholic and apostolic Church.

We acknowledge one baptism for the forgiveness of sins.

We look for the resurrection of the dead,
and the life of the world to come.  

Amen.

 

Prayers of Intercession

These responses may be used:

Lord, in your mercy

hear our prayer.

 

And at the end:

Merciful Father,

accept these prayers
for the sake of your Son,
our Saviour Jesus Christ. Amen.

 

The Liturgy of the Sacrament

 

The Peace

Christ is our peace. He has reconciled us to God in one body by the cross. We meet in his name and share his peace.

The peace of the Lord be always with you

and also with you.

Let us offer one another a sign of peace.

Preparation of the Table

Taking of the Bread and Wine

The Eucharistic Prayer

The Lord be with you.

And also with you.

Lift up your hearts.

We lift them to the Lord.

Let us give thanks to the Lord our God.

It is right to give thanks and praise.

It is indeed right, it is our duty and our joy,  at all times and in all places to give you thanks and praise, holy Father, heavenly King, almighty and eternal God, through Jesus Christ your Son our Lord.

For he is your living Word; through him you have created all things from the beginning, and formed us in your own image. Through him you have freed us from the slavery of sin, giving him to be born of a woman and to die upon the cross; you raised him from the dead and exalted him to your right hand on high.

Through him you have sent upon us your holy and life-giving Spirit, and made us a people for your own possession.

Therefore with angels and archangels, and with all the company of heaven, we proclaim your great and glorious name, for ever praising you and saying:

Holy, holy, holy Lord,
God of power and might,
heaven and earth are full of your glory.
Hosanna in the highest.
Blessed is he who comes in the name of the Lord. Hosanna in the highest.

Accept our praises, heavenly Father, through your Son our Saviour Jesus Christ, and as we follow his example and obey his command, grant that by the power of your Holy Spirit these gifts of bread and wine may be to us his body and his blood;

who, in the same night that he was betrayed, took bread and gave you thanks; he broke it and gave it to his disciples, saying: Take, eat; this is my body which is given for you; do this in remembrance of me.

In the same way, after supper he took the cup and gave you thanks; he gave it to them, saying: Drink this, all of you; this is my blood of the new covenant,

which is shed for you and for many for the forgiveness of sins. Do this, as often as you drink it,

in remembrance of me.

Therefore, heavenly Father, we remember his offering of himself made once for all upon the cross;

we proclaim his mighty resurrection and glorious ascension; we look for the coming of your kingdom,

and with this bread and this cup we make the memorial of Christ your Son our Lord.

Great is the mystery of faith:

Christ has died:

Christ is risen:

Christ will come again.

Accept through him, our great high priest, this our sacrifice of thanks and praise, and as we eat and drink these holy gifts in the presence of your divine majesty, renew us by your Spirit, inspire us with your love and unite us in the body of your Son,

Jesus Christ our Lord.

Through him, and with him, and in him, in the unity of the Holy Spirit, with all who stand before you in earth and heaven, we worship you, Father almighty,

in songs of everlasting praise:

 

Blessing and honour and glory and power

be yours for ever and ever.  Amen.

 

The Lord’s Prayer

Let us pray with confidence as our Saviour has taught us:

Our Father,
who art in heaven,
hallowed be thy name;
thy kingdom come;
thy will be done;
on earth as it is in heaven.
Give us this day our daily bread.
And forgive us our trespasses,
as we forgive those who trespass against us.
And lead us not into temptation;
but deliver us from evil.
For thine is the kingdom,
the power and the glory,
for ever and ever.  Amen.

Breaking of the Bread

The president breaks the consecrated bread.

Every time we eat this bread and drink this cup,

we proclaim the Lord’s death until he comes.

We say the Agnus Dei.

have mercy on us.

 

Lamb of God,

you take away the sin of the world,

have mercy on us.

 

Lamb of God,

you take away the sin of the world,

grant us peace.

 

Giving of Communion

Jesus is the Lamb of God

who takes away the sin of the world.

Blessed are those who are called to his supper.

 

Lord, I am not worthy to receive you,

but only say the word, and I shall be healed.

 

The President receives communion. A form of prayer for making your own spiritual communion is included in the weekly reflection on our website.

 

Prayer after Communion

Eternal God, comfort of the afflicted and healer of the broken, you have fed us at the table of life and hope: teach us the ways of gentleness and peace, that all the world may acknowledge the kingdom of your Son Jesus Christ our Lord.. Amen

Almighty God,

we thank you for feeding us

with the body and blood

of your Son Jesus Christ.

Through him we offer you
our souls and bodies
to be a living sacrifice.

Send us out in the power of your Spirit

to live and work
to your praise and glory. Amen.

 

Notices are given

the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit,

The Creed

All            We believe in one God,

                 the Father, the Almighty,

                 maker of heaven and earth,

                 of all that is,

                 seen and unseen.

                 We believe in one Lord, Jesus Christ,

                 the only Son of God,

                 eternally  begotten of the Father,

                 God from God, Light from Light,

                 true God from true God,

                 begotten, not made,

                 of one Being with the Father;

                 through him all things were made.

                 For us and for our salvation

                 he came down from heaven,

                 was incarnate from the Holy Spirit

                 and the Virgin Mary

                 and was made man.

                 For our sake he was crucified

                 under Pontius Pilate;

                 he suffered death and was buried.

                 On the third day he rose again

                 in accordance with the Scriptures;

                 he ascended into heaven

                 and is seated at the right hand of the Father.

                 He will come again in glory to judge the living

                 and the dead,

                 and his kingdom will have no end.

                 We believe in the Holy Spirit,

                 the Lord, the giver of life,

                 who proceeds from the Father and the Son,

                 who with the Father and the Son

                 is worshipped and glorified,

                 who has spoken through the prophets. 

                 We believe in one holy catholic

                 and apostolic Church.

                 We acknowledge one baptism

                 for the forgiveness of sins.

                 We look for the resurrection of the dead,

                 and the life of the world to come.

                 Amen.

And at the end

Merciful Father,

All            accept these prayers

for the sake of your Son,

                 our Saviour Jesus Christ.    

                 Amen.

Preparation of the Table

Taking of the Bread and Wine

Blessed are you, Lord, God of all creation:

through your goodness we have this bread

to set before you,

which earth has given and human hands have made.  It will become for us the bread of life.

All            Blessed be God forever.

Blessed are you, Lord, God of all creation:

through your goodness we have this wine

to set before you,

fruit of the vine and work of human hands.

It will become for us the cup of salvation.

All            Blessed be God forever.

 

Eucharistic Prayer

The Lord be with you.

All       and also with you.              

Lift up your hearts.

All       We lift them to the Lord.

            Let us give thanks to the Lord our God.

All       It is right to give thanks and praise.

            Father, we give you thanks and praise

through your beloved Son Jesus Christ,

your living Word,

through whom you have created all things;

who was sent by you in your great goodness

to be our Saviour.

By the power of the Holy Spirit he took flesh;

as your Son, born of the blessed Virgin,

he lived on earth and went about among us;

he opened wide his arms for us on the cross;

he put an end to death by dying for us;

and revealed the resurrection by rising to new life;

so he fulfilled your will

and won for you a holy people.

Therefore with angels and archangels,

and with all the company of heaven,

we proclaim your great and glorious name,

for ever praising you and saying/singing:

All       Holy, holy, holy Lord,
God of power and might,
heaven and earth are full of your glory.
Hosanna in the highest.
Blessed is he who comes

     in the name of the Lord.
Hosanna in the highest.

Lord, you are holy indeed, the source of all holiness;

grant that by the power of your Holy Spirit,

and according to your holy will,

these gifts of bread and wine

may be to us the body and blood

of our Lord Jesus Christ;

who, in the same night that he was betrayed,

took bread and gave you thanks;

he broke it and gave it to his disciples, saying:

Take, eat; this is my body which is given for you;

 

do this in remembrance of me.

In the same way, after supper

he took the cup and gave you thanks;

he gave it to them, saying:

Drink this, all of you;

this is my blood of the new covenant,

which is shed for you and for many

for the forgiveness of sins.

Do this, as often as you drink it,

in remembrance of me.

Great is the mystery of faith:

All       Christ has died:                   

     Christ is risen:                     

     Christ will come again.

And so, Father, calling to mind his death on the cross,

his perfect sacrifice made once

for the sins of the whole world;

rejoicing in his mighty resurrection

and glorious ascension,

and looking for his coming in glory,

we celebrate this memorial of our redemption.

As we offer you this our sacrifice of praise

and thanksgiving,

we bring before you this bread and this cup

and we thank you for counting us worthy

to stand in your presence and serve you.

Send the Holy Spirit on your people

and gather into one in your kingdom

all who share this one bread and one cup,

so that we, in the company of [N and] all the saints,

may praise and glorify you for ever,

through Jesus Christ our Lord;

by whom, and with whom, and in whom,

in the unity of the Holy Spirit,

all honour and glory be yours, almighty Father,

for ever and ever.

All       Amen.

Silence may be kept.

 

 The Lord’s Prayer

The president introduces the Lord’s Prayer.

Let us pray with confidence as our Saviour has taught us

All       Our Father, who art in heaven,

     hallowed be thy name;

     thy kingdom come;

     thy will be done;

     on earth as it is in heaven.

     Give us this day our daily bread.

     And forgive us our trespasses,

     as we forgive those who trespass against us.

     And lead us not into temptation;

     but deliver us from evil.

     For thine is the kingdom,

     the power and the glory,

     for ever and ever.    

     Amen.

 

Breaking of the Bread

The president breaks the consecrated bread and says.

We break this bread for those who love God,
for those who follow the path of the Buddha

and worship the God of the Hindus;
for our sisters and brothers in Islam,

and for the Jewish people from whom we come.
We pray that one day we may be as one.

We break this bread for the great green earth,
we call to mind the forests, fields and flowers which we are destroying,
that one day, with the original blessing, God’s creation will be restored.

We break this bread for those who have no bread,
the starving, the homeless and the refugees,
that one day this planet may be a home for everyone.

We break this bread for the broken parts of ourselves,
the wounded child in all of us, for our broken relationships,
that one day we may glimpse the wholeness that is of Christ.

A prayer said at the Breaking of Bread during the Eucharist.

Composed by the Revd Donald Reeves, Rector of St James, Piccadilly, 1980-1998,

& used for the first time following the events of September 11 2001.

 

 The Agnus Dei may be said   as the bread is broken.

All            Lamb of God,

                 you take away the sin of the world,

                 have mercy on us.

                 Lamb of God,

                 you take away the sin of the world,

                 have mercy on us.

                 Lamb of God,

                 you take away the sin of the world,

                 grant us peace.

 

Giving of Communion

The president raises the consecrated bread and wine and says either

                 Jesus Christ is Lord,

                 to the glory of God the Father.

It's possible that in July we'll be able to start having services in church again. To help us plan, we've put together a short survey to see how many people might want to come to services. It will only take a couple of minutes to fill in, so please complete it if you can, even if you're not able to come back to church yet.

You'll find the survey here.
